Here is a list of all administrators on the Screamer Wiki. If you have a general issue, please visit the Help Portal, where you can find help articles and guides.
Different users have access to different functions of the wiki. While anyone can do most things on the site, including reading and editing, administrators can access a few additional functions. Admins also have their usernames in bold and each have their own colour, so it's easier to recognize them.
If you want to learn more about what administrators and moderators are supposed to do, please read the Moderator Guide.
These additional functions include:
- Deleting and undeleting pages, page histories, and uploaded files.
- Locking (protecting) a page so it cannot be edited or renamed by users without admin rights or autoconfirmed status.
- Blocking IP addresses or user names from editing; and very quick "rollback" of undesirable edits.
- Editing the interface by changing system messages and skins.
- Giving / revoking moderator or chat moderator rights from any user.
A bureaucrat can do anything that an admin can, but they can also:
- Give/revoke admin, rollback, or content moderator rights to any user.
- Give, but not revoke bureaucrat rights to any user.
- FANDOM staff can still revoke bureaucrat rights from a user if needed.
Other User Groups
- Content moderators have all the same rights as an administrator, but cannot block users, moderate comments, or moderate discussions or the forum.
- Rollbacks can "rollback" a page if the page is vandalized by a rogue user.
- Chat moderators moderate the Special:Chat feature.
How do I use administrator powers?
See Help:Administrators' how-to guide for a guide on using admin functions.
What can administrators not do?
Administrators should not use their administrator powers to settle editing disputes; for example, to lock a page on a version he or she prefers in an editing dispute that isn't vandalism. Administrator powers should be used to help keep the wiki clear of vandalism, spam, and users who make malicious edits, but not for simple disagreements between users acting in good faith.
Ideally an admin shouldn't be considered "in charge". The ideal admin is just someone who is trusted to have a few extra buttons and to use them for the benefit of the Wikia community.
